I am trying to do something with my PAS23 thermal scope to make it weapon mounted. It does not have internal reticle adjustments so i made up this Picatinnty mount for an Elcan mount.
I am thinking about putting a NVM bracket on the PAS23 and using one of the available NVM rail brackets to mount on the Elcan assembly.
I need this part that Insight WTM uses this NVM type dovetail as well as many ATN products.




This is what I have so far.

Bad idea. these shit out from being weapon mounted from my understanding. its not made for that application, it doesn’t have a recoil system built in.

Don’t weapon mount the MTM. There is a specific model (the WTM) for weapon applications. At a minimum the system may shut off during weapon shock. At worst you could burn rows in the FPS.
Yep, that is clearly stated in linked thread from Arfcom, I should have noted that.

Note: I have zee-ro experience with this matter I was just bored and did some google research on the mount for you. Lol

Normally I would disagree with you but upon further thought I realized that the PAS23 is different in one respect from many thermal scopes.
The PAS23 microbolometer (FPA) is mounted in a DIP socket instead of soldered. It would shake loose after a while.
I have rebuilt dozens of night scopes and thermals and the much touted "recoil mitigation system" is usually no more than a couple drops of epoxy.
When I have time I will show what the inside of a PAS23 looks like. Insight likes using lots of epoxy.

# Frog05 I appreciate your candor. Most people post with internet knowledge like its a fact ARF.com being the worst.
